The nocturnal flightless brown kiwi is so remarkably unbirdlike in appearance and behavior that is has sometimes been referred to as an "honorary mammal." The kiwi's "fur" is actually a thick covering of shaggy hairlike grey-brown feathers. The useless vestigial wings (4-5 cm long) are completely hidden under the plumage. They have no external tails. The wide spacing of their robust sharp-clawed legs gives them an amusing rolling gait. More
